He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, 

that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free,

and that the time of the Lord’s favor has come. LUKE 4:18-19

Purpose

We advocate and defend freedom to proclaim and practise the Christian faith and we pray, speak up for and help those suffering persecution.

We do this by:

 

  • Encouraging the Church to pray, speak up and provide aid for persecuted Christians;
  • Urging governments to defend and uphold the provisions of the UN Declaration of Human Rights article 18;
  • Urging governments to intervene to protect freedom to proclaim and practise the Christian faith and those suffering religious persecution;
  • Building strong relationships with people and organisations that stand against violation of Christian freedom
  • Disseminating news and analysis of issues concerning religious freedom and persecuted Christians; and,
  • Sending aid received from donors.

A Call to the Church – ARISE

Affirm the Biblical mandate to stand for justice and peace
Raise awareness of the nature and extent of the persecution of Christians
Increase knowledge of worldviews which sanction oppression
Strengthen resolve to preserve God-given freedom
Encourage participation in advocacy – speaking truth to power
